  • Taylor from Sydney, Australia This is the best Alice in Chains song on the best Alice in Chains Album. I've read that 'Dirt' inspired Billy Corgan with some of the heavier tracks on Siamese Dream, which just makes it that little bit better too!
  • Jeffrey Thomas from U.s.aThis is one of my favorite Alice In Chains tunes! Best played loud.
